Teaser Tuesday - Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


I've begun reading Great North Road, by Peter F Hamilton, and I'm quite enjoying it so far.  The main portion of the story is a murder mystery - and the death may be connected to a previous murder years before.  In this scene, Angela - who was accused of the previous murder - remembers a disturbing moment from the scene of the crime that she claims she didn't commit...

The Tease:

"The monster was square in the center.  Humanoid, with dark, hard skin mimicking a human's contours, hands opening.  The blades expanding as they straightened out, growing to fill the entire screen.
Angela gasped.  It was her memory.  They'd taken her memory from her, pulled it right out of her skull with their diabolical machine and filthy drugs."

What's your Tease?
